I would say Petal offers the same sort of approach as Seamstress. It's pretty mature and seems to have an active community.

    I thought Petal was the same thing as Seamstress but after joining the GMANE list and reading the docs it is very different.
    • Petal provides a mini-language. Seamstress and XML::LibXML usage is nothing but object-oriented Perl.
    • Petal is xml-based, which is fine if you have well-done XHTML. Seamstress is based around the flexible HTML::TreeBuilder which uses HTML::Parser and can use old skool HTML with no problem.
    • did you see my post about creating alternating table rows with Petal? The way to do that in Seamstress or XML::LibXML is vastly different and in neither of our cases involves a mini-language.

[ambrus]: Corion: nah, cairo also has postscript output, but I think even for the postscript output device, the starting coordinate system is lower values at top
[ambrus]: (cairo supports arbitrary affine transformations of the coordinate space, so you can use an upside down system easily)
